VARD Planning Patron and Membership Program

Have you ever wished you could make a bigger impact with your donation?  Teton Valley needs you more than ever and becoming a local hero couldn’t be easier.  Memberships and monthly donations add up quickly and provide a steady stream of support to our advocacy efforts in your community.

As a member of our Planning Patron program, you can make your donations via monthly donations from our website, your bank’s bill pay system, in person or through the mail.  It’s safe and easy to do, and it provides a reliable stream of income for important advocacy work throughout our valley.

And now, thanks to the generosity of a long-time donor, when you sign up as a new Planning Patron, your donation is matched up to $5,000. In addition, new members receive the following to thank you for making such a tremendous commitment to our special valley:
